Job Description

Job Description

We are researching the development of modern approaches for highly automated driving. For this purpose, we are integrating machine learning methods such as neural networks into autonomous systems. Such methods must be highly robust against natural influences and targeted attacks. In the project "Safe Mobility" in cooperation with KASTEL, learning methods are to be evaluated on the basis of their safety-critical properties. In your work, you will simulate targeted attacks against learned methods like adversarial attacks and carry them out on our autonomous vehicles. Subsequently, you will increase the robustness of the learning procedures against successful attacks and natural influences.

Personal Qualifications

You posess

  • a very good Master's degree in computer science, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, mathematics, information systems, business engineering or a related technical or scientific course of study. Candidates, that want to achieve a PhD are preferred.
  • very good programming skills in Python and/or C++
  • excellent theoretical knowledge and practical experience in the field of neural networks and machine learning.
  • very good language skills in German and/or English

We offer

We offer access to autonomous research vehicles and the test field "Autonomous Driving Baden-Württemberg" which enable our research in real road conditions. We also offer an attractive and modern workplace with access to the excellent equipment of the KIT, a varied job, a wide range of training opportunities and flexible working time.
